Bug#1030568: src:cross-toolchain-base-mipsen: fails to migrate to testing for too long: unsatisfiable Build-Depends

Source: cross-toolchain-base-mipsen
Version: 21
Severity: serious
Tags: sid bookworm
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: out-of-sync

Dear maintainer(s) and mips* porter(s),

Please consider this an official warning for the mipsel and mips64el ports. Several key packages that are specific for mips* are behind in testing for way too long (bug #1023706, #1026129, #1026128) and so far I've only seen action after reminders.

The Release Team considers packages that are out-of-sync between testing and unstable for more than 60 days as having a Release Critical bug in testing [1]. Your package src:cross-toolchain-base-mipsen has been trying to migrate for 61 days [2]. Hence, I am filing this bug. Your package has a Build-Depends on linux-source-6.0 but that's no longer the linux version in testing.

If a package is out of sync between unstable and testing for a longer period, this usually means that bugs in the package in testing cannot be fixed via unstable. Additionally, blocked packages can have impact on other packages, which makes preparing for the release more difficult. Finally, it often exposes issues with the package and/or its (reverse-)dependencies. We expect maintainers to fix issues that hamper the migration of their package in a timely manner.
